Neanura magna
I checked the pictures again recently, due to the upload of new material by Mark Leppin. Although the specimen resembles Morulina at first sight, it turns out to be Neanura magna. The largest Neanura species in the USA. Sorry for the confusion caused.
It has only 5 dorsally visible abdominal segments. The 6th abdominal segment is completely covered by the 5th.
Note also the typical 'triangular' arrangement of the tubercles on the 4th abdominal segment.

Morulina multatuberculata
